Love the use of masonry bricks as pockets, and the rest of the figure looks great too! I think a face could make it better and more expressive though, increasing the size of the figure by a factor of about 1.5-2 can help to add in some facial expression. As to the rest of the build, the grass pieces fit in well in this scale, though having more of them would probably be better. Also the dark green ground doesn't really go well with the scene, maybe a mix of dark tan and normal green (and perhaps a bit of sand green, if you have it) would be better. The tree is an interesting idea with those leaves, but I think it could be further developed, maybe with a studs-on-all-sides trunk and some twists/bends in the trunk/branches/leaves. Overall though, the scene is very effective, and the idea is great!

What matt said. The use of the profile brick is genius! And, as always, your brick built minifigure is amazing. Though the build itself is very plain, it looks pretty good. Great MOC.
Thanks! I really do love making these guys... XP I don't have many green foliage pieces but I probably could have added more... Gosh darn it. XP
I agree with Matt NPU. This should be your calling card for the brick built figures group.
I like it

For a simple and quick entry, this is actually outstanding. I think the use of the profile bricks for pants is genius, they look like real khakis with pockets. I will definitely use that technique in the future. These Brick built figures are really getting to be "old hat" for you. ;) You really have developed a masterful eye for these and this one is no exception. Excellent!
